Move it forward – Conference
Are you an entrepreneur and you need a little bit of outside inspiration and guidance?
Join us on Thursday October 5th with 4 hours of workshops for entrepreneurs where experienced entrepreneurs from Chicago will help you tackle your business goals.
Idea to prototype
Everyone has the next best thing in their brain, but getting it down, turning it into something tangible and getting feedback is a lot more difficult than people think. Two of the Super Six will work with people with ideas, and guide them through the process of how to develop the idea into a prototype. They will set them on a path that will move their idea forward, using contemporary business methods from SPRINT and Lean Start-up.
Entering the market
The prototype worked, the feedback is positive but now it’s time to go to market. There’s suddenly a minefield ahead and entrepreneurs have to go it alone or find an ally to help them. Two of the Super Six will talk to you about finding partners for the venture, they’ll discuss marketing and promotional activity and how to find funding and cut costs. We’ll also have a local legal eagle to help our entrepreneurs navigate the Croatian system, which is a feast in itself.
Scale, grow, prosper
Finally the product or service is selling well and you need to grow, but where do you get the investment from, how do you know what you need to scale, and when can you enjoy economies of scale. Fear no more, two of the Super Six will share how to find investment, be it from Ante down the road or Steve in Mississippi, where to invest this money and how to move things from local to national and beyond.
